Our renowned team of probate and estate administration lawyers will guide you through the process. We’ll handle everything from the preparation of HMRC tax returns, advising on tax reliefs available and maximising their use, negotiating with HMRC if valuations aren’t agreed, completing statutory notices to protect executors against creditors’ claims, advising where foreign assets are involved, ensuring that the wishes of the deceased are carried out, setting up and administering any trusts arising under the Will or as a result of intestacy, mitigating inheritance tax including using Deeds of Variation where appropriate and dealing with contested estates when disputes arise.

Ensuring that your questions are answered, the paperwork is dealt with, the arrangements made and that you’re supported sensitively, respectfully and with the minimum of disruption.
